Yankees President Randy Levine hates the new Steinbrenner documentary

Sep 9, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

I’m going to assume that the upcoming Barbara Kopple/ESPN documentary on George Steinbrenner is pretty good, even-handed and informative. Why? Because Yankees President Randy Levine hates it:

very much like his old boss, Yankees president Randy Levine Wednesday
fired verbal shots at an upcoming ESPN documentary on George
Steinbrenner, calling it “disjointed” and “the usual news at 6.” . . . It was a disjointed effort. I’m not sure where she was trying to go with the story.

Probably in a critical and truthful direction, Randy, which doesn’t square with the team’s narrative that the man could do no wrong. I’m looking forward to it actually.

Best part of the article: the suggestion by Kopple that Levine’s really upset with it because he’s not in it.

    Given Kopple’s track record, I would bet on it being pretty damn good. If you’ve never seen “Harlan County USA,” do yourself a favor.

    I love some of the comments on that page…one mocking his jeri curl hairdo and another saying the boss is the guy who brought the longest championship drought(1978-1996) to the Yankees in their history.

    I’ve actually never seen a photo of Randy Levine before. He kinda resembles Buddy Holly with cortisone bloat.

    So which Yankee looks like Mary Tyler Moore?

    Interesting, never put Steinbrenner and the “Golden Age” (78-96) together; might change my opinion of the man…
